Community Safety

Nothing is more important than community safety.

We have seen crime rates decline across Queensland over each of the past nine months following our increased investment in early intervention programs, additional police and tougher bail rules.

However, we know there’s more to be done, which is why the Miles Government has launched the new community Safety Plan for Queensland.

The new plan focuses on:

📌Preventing crime before it occurs

📌Detaining offenders

📌Intervening when people offend

📌Supporting victims

📌Delivering for our frontline

It delivers $1.28b in new investment in community safety, including 57 additional police for our region and support for programs working in Mackay like Project Booyah and Transition 2 Success, which do an incredible job of helping at-risk kids to find a better path.

Despite what some people claim, there isn’t a simple, easy way to break the crime cycle, but this plan focuses on not only holding offenders accountable for their actions but, most importantly, on trying to prevent crime from happening in the first place. That’s how we improve community safety.
